Jardines Aranjuez

What to see:

In the south of Madrid, you will feel royal as you walk through Aranjuez’s lush gardens and visit its impressive Royal Palace. Built as the royal family’s summer house, Aranjuez is best to visit in Spring or Summer so you can take in all the colours of its gardens in full bloom. Unlike most towns in Spain, there are no tiny streets here.  Aranjuez stands out for its large and spacious boulevards. Once you’ve built up an appetite, there are plenty of good Spanish restaurants right along the Tajo river where you can enjoy typical Spanish food and carne de caza (game food).
